Do not forget our friends up north as they know how to party just like we do here in Hollywood and tonight Canada is rocking at the 2007 Juno Awards which honor Canadian artists and bands. Nelly Furtado, host of this year's show, walked away with FIVE, count 'em, FIVE awards. She won the Fan Choice Award, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Pop Album of the Year. Think it's fixed? Nah.
Anyway, wherever there is an awards show there is swag and our Canadian counterparts put together a celebrity gift bag for the host, presenters and performers. Performers include Alezisonfire, Billy Talent, City and Colouor, DJ Champion, Gregory Charles, k-os, Patrick Wilson, The Tragically Hip and Three Days Grace. Oh yeah, and Nelly Furtado.
So let's check out this swag bag from Saskatoon!
